Thous who think they have no time for healthy eating will sooner or later have to find time for illness
Eating healthy is a goal for most people, but often times a difficult one to regularly achieve. Work and family responsibilities often make time scarce, and it is easier to go out to restaurants or prepare ready-made meals at home. The recent recession also prompted many to search for value, and sometimes healthy options such as organic produce and other environmental considerations took a back seat as they are oftentimes considered more expensive than “standard” products.
This is a list of food that you can get on going and feel guilt free about your goals for healthy eating:
- Yogurt – Very powerful probiotic, which literally means ”for life,” refers to living organisms that can result in a health benefit when eaten in adequate amounts.
- Vegetables – very rich sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C. Diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure.
- Fruits – loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber just like vegetables and this is what your metabolic system needs. Your meal plan needs carbohydrate so fruit are the write choice for you.
- Nuts – packed with protein, most nuts contain at least some of these heart-healthy substances: Unsaturated fats. It’s not entirely clear why, but it’s thought that the “good” fats in nuts — both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — lower bad cholesterol levels. Omega-3 fatty acids.
You can consume this foods i way you want, like fresh salad, fresh juice, yogurt with fruits and the list go on, you can find hand full of recipes and be creative in your choice of food.
Recipe of the day : Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie
Begin with 1 cup plain, unflavored yogurt (unflavored is best; then you can build your own masterpiece) and 1 cup of your choice of fruit…bananas, berries, peaches, pineapple—anything works! I used blueberries. They’re so darn good for you.
Have some milk nearby to get the smoothie to the consistency you wish. If you like your smoothie very thick, you can leave out the milk.
Also have a little honey or fruit juice for sweetness. I like honey because it adds only sweetness without competing with the purity of the fruit you chose. I’m kind of a one-fruit smoothie girl. Actually, I’m not. I just made that up. I also prefer honey to fruit juice because it doesn’t thin the smoothie like juice does.
Also: Ice. Ice makes it yummy and more like a milkshake.
Throw everything into the blender:
Now blend ’til smooth:
Then give it a quick taste and make sure it’s sweet enough for you. Sometimes, depending on the fruit, you don’t need to add much sweetness.
And that’s it, You can enjoy your home made Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie!
